Like many of you, TheFeed loves making fun of old people: We're certain we will never fall into the trap of aging and never have to suffer the inevitable decline in physical and mental powers that comes with it, so ha ha @ old people. We can't quite manage to find anything funny about the news coming out of the Chicago Tribune, though. See, at the Chicago-area Sedgebrook retirement community, geriatrics are playing The Wii in great numbers.
"I've never been into video games," 72-year-old Flora Dierbach told the Tribune while playing Wii Sports: Bowling. "But this is addictive...Sometimes, on Saturday afternoons, the residents' grandkids come play with them."
The plucky elders dig the Wii so much they've been known to yell "23-Skidoo!" and organize bowling tournaments in the recreation room.
TheFeed really thinks you should call your grandparents, maybe bring them a Wii and play some golf. They don't ask a lot of you, and eventually, they'll die.
